Leadership is not a synonym for management, it is a high-order capability. Leaders determine where the business is going, with broad internal and external objectives, and align the assets and skills of the organization with the opportunities and risks presented by the environment. He is the strategist who establishes the organization's objectives. Each leader has his or her own distinctive style, whether democraic, authoritarian, or benevolent. One distinguishing aspect of the leader, however is the aura of authority. The manager possesses a level of power commensurate with his or her position and responsibility. The leader's power, however, is often derived from opinion, respect, and esteem as well as from the power to dominate and command.
